The Path of Libertation

May ALL sentient beings have happiness!
May ALL sentient beings be free from suffering!
May ALL sentient beings never be separated from the joy that is free from suffering!
May ALL sentient beings abide in equanimity, free from attachment and aversion!
(The Four Immeasurables)

I anoint the Earth with fragrant water
And adorn it with Mount Meru, the four continents, the sun and the moon...
Imagining it a Buddha field,
I offer it that ALL beings may enjoy this pure realm!
(From Tibetan Buddhist Ngondro Mandala offering)

Birdbrain harpoons whales and chews blubber in the tropics
Birdbrain clubs baby harp seals and wears their coats to Paris
Birdbrain runs the Pentagon his brother runs the CIA, Fatass Bucks!
Birdbrain writes and edits Time Newsweek Wall Street Journal Pravda Izvestia
(Allan GinsbergBirdbrain)
